Westminster Winners Past – A Complete List

February 19th, 2010 by Dan

The Westminster Dog Show has been around for 134 years, but the prize for Best In Show has only been awarded since 1907. During the past 103 years (there was no Best In Show in 1923), many breeds have shared the honor of holding that title, but plenty haven’t. Here is a complete list of the breeds that have won Best In Show:
